[Ratcliffe]
What can you expect
From filthy little heathens?
Their whole disgusting race is like a curse.
Their skin's a hellish red
They're only good when dead
They're vermin, as I said
And worse

[English Settlers]
They're savages! Savages!

[Ratcliffe]
Barely even human
[English Settlers]
Savages! Savages!

[Ratcliffe]
Drive them from our shore!
They're not like you and me
Which means they must be evil
We must sound the drums of war!

[English Settlers]
They're savages! Savages!
Dirty redskin devils!
Now we sound the drums of war!

[Powhatan]
This is what we feared
The paleface is a demon
The only thing they feel at all is greed

[Kekata]
Beneath that milky hide
There's emptiness inside

[Native Americans]
I wonder if they even bleed?
They're savages! Savages!
Barely even human
Savages! Savages!

[Powhatan]
Killers at the core

[Kekata]
They're different from us
Which means they can't be trusted

[Powhatan]
We must sound the drums of war

[Native Americans]
They're savages! Savages!
First we deal with this one

[All]
Then we sound the drums of war

[English Settlers]
Savages! Savages!

[Ben]
Let's go kill a few, men!

[Native Americans]
Savages! Savages!

[Ratcliffe]
Now it's up to you, men!

[All]
Savages! Savages!
Barely even human!
Now we sound the drums of war!

    Wrong video or lyrics. The video is french, and the lyrics are English. I can't find the English one, but maybe someone else can?
